Race 1 – Premier of NSW Cup
This is supposedly a two-horse race, but the burly stallion Bazza O’Fazza will start at shorter odds than Black Caviar. Little value for punters in this one.
Bazza O’Fazza – Long considered to be little more than a plodder, Bazza O’Fazza has developed into a genuine stayer with a wily sense of timing. Has been set for this race, and will be very hard to beat.
Nobody’s Puppet – The imported glamour filly from has always been highly regarded, but has been hampered by a terrible preparation this time around. A number of her ALP stable mates have been very frisky in the mounting yards, and this has caused endless distractions for young trainer Sam Dastyari. Nobody’s Puppet has earned respect for simply getting to the starting gates under the circumstances. Anything better than last by 15 lengths will be considered a success.
